This is a very intense psychological thriller. The last 100 pages are non stop action and it is an excellent read. I will be looking for more books by this author.

All I can say is WOW! This has to be one of the most suspenseful books I've ever read. I couldn't put it down and read all but 30 pages in one day (staying up very late in the night to finish it). While the subject matter of severe child abuse can be disturbing, if you like chilling suspense then you'll enjoy this book.

This is an extremely disturbing story but it's impossible to put down. I read it straight through in 4 hours, finishing it at 1am. Parts made me feel physically uncomfortable and slightly ill but it was a very powerful story!

Although the plot was a bit formulaic at times, the intensity of the action and the predicament of the characters kept my interest throughout. I especially liked getting the different viewpoints from the characters such as Chet, Davy and Celia.
